in reply to Mixing up da Arrays (Golf)

I'll definitly win the 'ugly one' contest with this one...
Its only advantage : it leaves the arrays passed as arguments untouched, (I feel that someone could make it smaller too)

The most bothering thing for me (apart from the nasty $i handling)is the stop test :
last unless (join'',@n)
Too long, and to weird, anyone to help me improve this ?

sub Mix2 { my (@r,@n); my $i=-1; while($i++>-2){ @n=map{$_->[$i]}@_; @r=(@r,@n); last unless (join'',@n) } @r; }
UPDATE :
To save one char and make it even uglier,
You can whange while($i++>-2) to while($i+++2)
(and my $i=-1; to my $i--; for another one)

[Corion]: I've started that again this month (now forever instead of a limited time), and it already destresses me a lot
[holli]: There are Anti Vaxxer weeks at IKEA.
[Corion]: Of course, it's a 20% cut in the money I receive, while the work doesn't necessarily reduce at all, but my approach is to make the work take longer instead of fitting 5 days worth of work into 4
[holli]: 50% off all children coffins.
[Corion]: holli: Ooof :)
[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
